Roboform for Chrome is here (alpha version)

An alpha build of Roboform for Chrome was publicly released today. Right now it actually works only on Chromium, because Chrome has to fix something in the meantime, however saying Chromium or Chrome is like saying potato instead of potatoe - same thing just that the logo is different.

So if you want to be one of the early birds that tests the alpha build (seems to be stable enough to be called a beta) of Roboform for Chrome (chromium), you can read how you can do that here: Roboform for Chrome (alpha release). Thank you Siber System, been waiting for this for a long time!
